Use chart on iPad while I fly on my Mac

Good morning,

I would like to know how to connect my iPad, which runs Navigraph maps, to my i-Mac.

I run X-Plane 11 on the i-Mac and when I open the Navigraph app on my iPad and I press the arrow on above right a red message says:

Moving Maps
A running simulator could not be detected

What I should do to link them up?

Thank you for your help.



You need to download and install Charts for macOS. This includes Charts and Simlink which provides the connection between your X-Plane 11 and our servers.

Please let us know how you get on.


Hi Ian,

Thank you for your answer.

I already use Charts for Mac OS… what I would and I have already installed it on my iPad…

I thought that meanwhile I fly with x.Plane, I could see the position on navigraph charts on my iPad.

As I wrote you in my previous mail the message it shows that it can’t find any active simulator.

Attached you can see two screenshots… the first is taken from my iMac the second from my iPad.

I bet I do something wrong.

Beste regards

In the Charts for macOS installer is also the installer for Simlink. Please install Simlink to get Moving Map.


I had read that those who use the operating system mac os shouldn’t have downloaded simlink.

Anyway… where I can download the proper software for Mac OS.

Best regards


Hi Joe,

Please see Moving Map not available on Mac, XP11.50- where do I find SimLink?


I understand well that I cannot use it?

Sorry but I don’t really understand what you wrote…

Hi Joe,

To install Simlink from the Chart macOS installer, can you please double click on the Simlink.pkg package .
